8 The highlight of this release is the new -m flag for para_afh which
9 lets it modify the meta tags of the given audio file(s). This feature
10 is supported for all audio formats. Many small cleanups and bug fixes
11 not mentioned here have accumulated and are also part of the release.
12
13 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
14 opus flac aac files.
15 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
16 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
17 inconsistencies.
18 - New -v flag for the version command (print verbose version string)
19 - New option --priority for para_server and para_audiod.
20 - New mood methods: image_id and lyrics_id.
21 - The manual and this NEWS file have been converted to markdown.
22 - Cleanup of the wma decoder and bitstream code.
23 - Improved wide-character support and fixes related to signal handling.
24 - para_gui no longer reports 100% playing time at the stream start.

29 0.5.5 (2015-09-20) "magnetic momentum"
30 --------------------------------------
31
32 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
33
34 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
35 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
36 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
37 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
38 usernames rather than only user IDs.
39 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
40 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
41 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
42 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
43 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
44 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
45 - Web page cleanup.
46 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
47 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
48 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
49 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

77 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
78 ---------------------------------------------
79
80 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
81
82 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
83 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
84 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
85 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
86 for the generated man pages.
87 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
88 serious bugs have been fixed.
89 - new audiod command: version.
90 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
91 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
92 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

99 0.5.2 (2014-04-11) "orthogonal interior"
100 ----------------------------------------
101
102 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
103 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
104 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
105
106 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
107 clients.
108 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
109 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
110 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
111 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
112 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
113 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
114 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
115 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
116 initial volumes, better error logging.
117 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
118 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
119 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
120 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
121 - Improved user manual.
122 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

128 ------------------------------------------
129 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
130 ------------------------------------------
131
132 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
133 of the build system.
134
135 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
136 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
137 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
138 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
139 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
140 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
141 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
142 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
143 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
144 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
145 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
146 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
147 which further improves build time.
148 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
149 and fixed.

156 0.5.0 (2013-08-23) "invertible validity"
157 ----------------------------------------
158
159 Some API-breaking changes, one serious bug fix, and a lot of bike-shedding.
160
161 - The sideband compatibility code has been removed, hence
162 sideband connections (introduced in 0.4.11) are now mandatory.
163 - Addblob commands can produce output.
164 - The stat command no longer sends garbage when para_server was
165 compiled against libgcrypt.
166 - Dependencies for gengetopt files are computed automatically.
167 This eliminates a constant source of build bugs.
168 - The setatt command now accepts file name patterns rather than only
169 path names.
170 - overview.pdf is now based on dia, a simple diagram creation program.
171 The new version is much more detailed and contains descriptions of
172 the various programs of the paraslash package.
173 - The separator of all multi-word options has been changed from
174 underscore to dash. For example --log_color becomes --log-color.
175 - Overhauled web pages and the new logo.

182 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
183 --------------------------------------
184
185 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
186 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
187 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
188 and fixes all over the place.
189
190 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
191 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
192 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
193 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
194 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
195 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
196 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
197 on shutdown.
198 - Improved manual pages.
199 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
200 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
201 recompilations on changes.
202 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
203 - Improved downloads web page.
204
205 -----------------------------------------
206 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
207 -----------------------------------------
208 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
209 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
210 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
211
212 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
213 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
214 libsamplerate.
215 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
216 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
217 in the new "releases" branch.
218 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
219 written to the "build" directory.
220 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
221 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
222
223 --------------------------------------
224 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
225 --------------------------------------
226
227 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
228 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
229 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
230 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
231 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
232 ALSA writer.
233
234 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
235 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
236 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
237 removed.
238 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
239 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
240 - Documentation improvements.
241 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
242 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
243 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
244 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
245
246 ------------------------------------------
247 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
248 ------------------------------------------
249
250 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
251 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
252
253 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
254 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
255 removed in the next version.
256 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
257 command in the bottom window.
258 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
259 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
260 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
261 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
262 para_afh.
263 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
264 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
265 being built.
266 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
267
268 -------------------------------------
269 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
270 -------------------------------------
271
272 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
273 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
274
275 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
276 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
277 (corrupt) mp3 files.
278 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
279 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
280 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
281 full tab completion and command line history.
282 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
283 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
284 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
285 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
286 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
287 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
288 delays on slow media.
289 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
290 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
291 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
292 use the DMIX plugin.
293 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
294 - Makefile cleanups.
295 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
296 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
297 given pattern(s).
298
299 --------------------------------------
300 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
301 --------------------------------------
302
303 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
304 are the highlights of this release.
305
306 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
307 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
308 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
309 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
310 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
311 and vice versa.
312 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
313 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
314 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
315 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
316 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
317 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
318 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
319 gengetopt to build the tarball.
320 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
321 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
322 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
323 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
324 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
325 - vss timeout cleanups.
326 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
327
328 --------------------------------------
329 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
330 --------------------------------------
331
332 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
333 enhancements.
334
335 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
336 platforms through the libao audio library.
337 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
338 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
339 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
340 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
341 runs a parallel make if possible.
342 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
343 - Documentation updates.
344
345 ------------------------------------------
346 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
347 ------------------------------------------
348
349 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
350 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
351
352 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
353 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
354 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
355 FEC group size.
356 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
357 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
358 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
359 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
360 to installing the package.
361 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
362 - Scheduler improvements
363 - Proper exit codes for para_write
364 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
365 other improvements and fixes.
366 - aacdec error message cleanups
367 - simplified color error handling
368
369 --------------------------------------------
370 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
371 --------------------------------------------
372
373 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
374
375 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
376 handler code.
377 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
378 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
379 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
380 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
381 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
382 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
383 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
384
385 ------------------------------------------
386 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
387 ------------------------------------------
388
389 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
390 bug fixes.
391
392 - Support for the speex codec.
393 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
394 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
395 considerably.
396 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
397 para_filter/para_audiod.
398 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
399
400 ----------------------------------------
401 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
402 ----------------------------------------
403
404 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
405 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
406
407 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
408 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
409 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
410 parameters for the DCCP transport.
411 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
412 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
413 and INSTALL documents.
414 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
415 - The new nonblock API.
416 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
417 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
418
419 ------------------------------------------
420 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
421 ------------------------------------------
422
423 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
424 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
425 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
426 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
427
428 - The new buffer tree API.
429 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
430 - UDP robustness fixes.
431 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
432 for the new buffer tree API.
433 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
434 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
435 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
436 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
437 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
438
439 ---------------------------------------
440 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
441 ---------------------------------------
442
443 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
444 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
445 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
446
447 - wma support.
448 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
449 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
450 - build system improvements.
451 - source code documentation updates.
452
453 -------------------------------------
454 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
455 -------------------------------------
456
457 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
458 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
459
460 - Always check return value of malloc().
461 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
462 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
463 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
464 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
465 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
466 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
467 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
468 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
469 - FEC: Timing improvements.
470
471 ----------------------------------------------
472 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
473 ----------------------------------------------
474
475 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
476 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
477 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
478 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
479 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
480
481 - stronger crypto for client authentication
482 - the database code has been moved to a library
483 - improved status item handling
484 - cleanup of the build system
485 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
486 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
487 - mandatory rc4 encryption
488 - major audio format handler cleanups
489 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
490 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
491 album_matches, year_maches, year.
492
493 --------------------------------------------
494 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
495 --------------------------------------------
496
497 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
498 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
499 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
500 series if no serious problems show up.
501
502 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
503 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
504 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
505 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
506 with "add -f".
507 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
508 - the new prebuffer filter
509 - improved signal handling
510 - variable fec output buffer size
511 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
512 - --log_color actually works
513 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
514 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
515 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
516 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
517
518 -----------------------------------------
519 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
520 -----------------------------------------
521
522 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
523 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
524 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
525
526 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
527 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
528 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
529 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
530 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
531 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
532 "--loglevel info".
533 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
534 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
535 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
536 - new audiod option: --config-file.
537 - gengetopt cleanups.
538 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
539 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
540 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
541 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
542 modes of operation.
543 - More source code documentation.
544 - vss timing fixes.
545
546 --------------------------------------------
547 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
548 --------------------------------------------
549
550 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
551 amplification filter.
552
553 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
554 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
555 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
556 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
557 - aac meta info support.
558 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
559 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
560 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
561 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
562 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
563 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
564 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
565
566 -----------------------------------------
567 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
568 -----------------------------------------
569
570 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
571
572 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
573 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
574 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
575 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
576 of output.
577 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
578 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
579
580 ---------------------------------------
581 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
582 ---------------------------------------
583
584 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
585 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
586 a good sign.
587
588 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
589 dccp sender.
590 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
591 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
592 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
593 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
594 Gerrit Renker).
595 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
596 - Audiod performance improvements.
597 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
598 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
599 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
600
601 -------------------------------------
602 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
603 -------------------------------------
604
605 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
606
607
608 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
609 for a major release like this.
610
611 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
612 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
613 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
614 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
615
616 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
617 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
618 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
619
620 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
621 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
622 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
623 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
624 - Lyrics support.
625 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
626 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
627 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
628 Solaris (sparc64).
629 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
630 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
631 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
632 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
633 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
634 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
635 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
636 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
637 para_gui is still there.
638 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
639 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
640 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
641 - Improved error subsystem.
642 - The earth-shaking new logo.
643
644 -----------------------------------------
645 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
646 -----------------------------------------
647
648 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
649 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
650
651 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
652 - universal chunk queueing.
653 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
654 to Gerrit Renker).
655 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
656 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
657 codes.
658 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
659 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
660 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
661 compiler characteristics.
662 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
663 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
664
665 --------------------------------------
666 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
667 --------------------------------------
668
669 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
670 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
671 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
672 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
673
674 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
675 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
676 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
677 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
678 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
679 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
680 and AFS_WRITE.
681 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
682 to start only after a few seconds.
683 - fix osx_writer hangs
684 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
685 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
686
687 -----------------------------------------
688 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
689 -----------------------------------------
690
691 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
692
693 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
694 startup rather than for each connection
695 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
696 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
697 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
698 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
699 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
700 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
701 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
702 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
703 correctly
704 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
705 - documentation improvements
706 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
707 - new man pages
708
709 -------------------------------------------
710 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
711 -------------------------------------------
712
713 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
714 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
715 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
716
717 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
718 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
719 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
720 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
721 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
722 - some robustness fixes
723 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
724 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
725 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
726
727 ---------------------------------------
728 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
729 ---------------------------------------
730
731 A bunch of new features and core changes.
732
733 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
734 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
735 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
736 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
737 para_recv and para_filter.
738 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
739 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
740 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
741 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
742 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
743 - update to libortp-0.10.1
744 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
745 - update to autoconf-2.60
746
747 ------------------------------------------
748 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
749 ------------------------------------------
750
751 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
752 features:
753
754 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
755 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
756 for this.
757 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
758 - para_play renamed to para_write
759 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
760 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
761 - compress filter speed improvements
762 - update to libortp-0.9.1
763 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
764 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
765 code for the interactive mode was removed).
766 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
767 work, but it gets no more testing.
768 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
769 reduces its size quite a bit.
770 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
771 and --enable-mysql-libs
772
773 ------------------------------------
774 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
775 ------------------------------------
776
777 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
778 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
779 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
780 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
781
782 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
783 selector)
784 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
785 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
786 more info (and some examples).
787 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
788 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
789 - the new ipc subsystem
790 - new audio file selector: playlist
791 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
792 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
793 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
794 change the selector at runtime.
795 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
796 - para_play fixes
797
798 --------------------------------------
799 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
800 --------------------------------------
801
802 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
803 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
804 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
805 to the new source documentation.
806
807 - autoconf cleanup
808 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
809 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
810 - gui improvements:
811 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
812 - scrollable output window
813 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
814 - fix color of command output.
815 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
816 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
817 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
818
819 -------------------------------------------
820 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
821 -------------------------------------------
822
823 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
824 a lot of small improvements.
825
826 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
827 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
828 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
829 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
830 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
831 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
832 of the ortp receiver.
833 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
834 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
835 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
836 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
837 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
838 and reduces code size.
839
840 -----------------------------------------
841 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
842 -----------------------------------------
843
844 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
845
846 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
847 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
848 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
849 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
850 read/write operations are used).
851 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
852 certain circumstances.
853
854 -------------------------------------------
855 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
856 -------------------------------------------
857
858 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
859
860 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
861 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
862 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
863 too early on a loaded network.
864 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
865 future time by the --start_time option.
866 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
867 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
868 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
869 only the http receiver in this case.
870 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
871 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
872 - improved ortp timings.
873 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
874 gcc < 3.0.
875
876 -------------------------------------------
877 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
878 -------------------------------------------
879
880 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
881 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
882
883 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
884 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
885 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
886 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
887 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
888 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
889 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
890 rather than calling find(1). The server option
891 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
892 - documentation update
893 - man pages
894 - header file cleanup
895 - para_client code cleanup
896 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
897
898 ------------------------------------------
899 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
900 ------------------------------------------
901
902 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
903 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
904 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
905 is no longer needed).
906
907 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
908 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
909 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
910 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
911 in parallel.
912
913 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
914 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
915 sender" for more information.
916 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
917 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
918 http receiver.
919 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
920 senders.
921 - ogg timing improvements
922 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
923 - empty stream definitions work again
924 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
925 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
926
927 ---------------------------------------
928 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
929 ---------------------------------------
930
931 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
932
933 - audiod:
934 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
935 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
936 for more information.
937 - fix memory leak
938 - code cleanup
939 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
940 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
941 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
942 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
943 non-standard places
944 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
945 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
946 new command line option: --announce_time
947
948 -----------------------------------------
949 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
950 -----------------------------------------
951
952 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
953
954 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
955 (including none) filters for each supported audio
956 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
957 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
958 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
959 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
960 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
961 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
962 from stdin.
963 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
964 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
965 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
966 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
967 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
968 clients that play the same stream.
969
970 ------------------------------------------
971 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
972 ------------------------------------------
973
974 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
975 for the mysql database tool.
976
977 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
978 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
979 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
980 resulting binaries)
981 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
982 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
983 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
984 again.
985 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
986 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
987 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
988 information.
989
990 ---------------------------------------
991 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
992 ---------------------------------------
993
994 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
995 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
996
997 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
998 - cleanup of the build system
999 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
1000 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
1001 line utitlity
1002 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1003 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1004 more information.
1005 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1006 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1007 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1008 Default: "para_client pic"
1009 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1010 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1011
1012 ------------------------------------------
1013 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1014 ------------------------------------------
1015
1016 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1017 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1018 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1019
1020 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1021 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1022 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1023 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1024 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1025 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1026 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1027 libvorbisfile.
1028 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1029 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1030 - documentation updates
1031 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1032 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1033 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1034 playback time rather than streaming time
1035 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1036 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1037 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1038
1039 ----------------------------------------
1040 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1041 ----------------------------------------
1042
1043 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1044 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1045 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1046 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1047
1048 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1049 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1050 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1051 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1052 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1053 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1054 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1055 than from stdin
1056 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1057 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1058 mp3 files with invalid header information
1059 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1060 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1061 - diffstats
1062
1063 ---------------------------------------
1064 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1065 ---------------------------------------
1066
1067 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1068 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1069 stick to mp3...
1070
1071 - fix several memory leaks
1072 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1073 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1074 rename your old database.
1075 - rework ogg vorbis code
1076 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1077 disabled
1078 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1079 - simplified audio format API
1080 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1081
1082 ------------------------------------
1083 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1084 ------------------------------------
1085
1086 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1087
1088 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1089 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1090 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1091 README and FEATURES for more info.
1092 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1093 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1094 race-free.
1095 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1096 - improved help message for sl
1097 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1098 perfectly ok.
1099 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1100
1101 -----------------------------------------
1102 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1103 -----------------------------------------
1104
1105 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1106 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1107 enhancements went also in.
1108
1109 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1110 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1111 exists, rather than returning errors
1112 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1113 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1114 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1115 no server is running
1116 - si: report also server pid
1117 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1118 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1119 - fix pic_add, hist
1120 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1121 - many small fixes and cleanups
1122
1123 ---------------------------------------
1124 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1125 ---------------------------------------
1126
1127 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1128 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1129 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1130 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1131 compatible in that respect.
1132
1133 Visible changes:
1134
1135 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1136 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1137 always work.
1138 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1139 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1140 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1141 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1142 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1143 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1144 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1145 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1146
1147 -------------------------------------------
1148 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1149 -------------------------------------------
1150
1151 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1152
1153 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1154 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1155 id.
1156 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1157
1158 -----------------------------------------
1159 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1160 -----------------------------------------
1161

1177
1178 -----------------------------------------
1179 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1180 -----------------------------------------
1181
1182 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1183 and stream large audio sets happily)
1184 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1185 streaming software
1186 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1187 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1188 file/config option for dbtool.
1189 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1190 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1191 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1192 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1193 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1194 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1195 show silly logo on startup
1196 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1197 manipulating attributes
1198 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database

1204 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1205 ---------------------------------------------
1206
1207 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1208 core code considerably.
1209 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1210 give finer info on afs' status.
1211 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1212 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1213 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1214 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1215 continuously.
1216 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1217 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1218 - codename funnies
